cRoSs CoUnTrY...

We just got home from the first cross country meet of the year. Taylor and Delaney both run this year.....the Melcher-Dallas school district does not have a cross country program so the girls go to Pleasantville(nearby town) to run. The girls cross country in Iowa run a 4K race....that is about 2 1/2 miles. We went to Corydon tonite. Taylor(junior) ran her race in 17 minutes and 21 seconds and got 6th place....Delaney(freshman) ran hers in 18 minutes and 22 seconds...very good for her very first time ever running cross country!!!! As a team the got first place!!!! Everybody had a good nite!!! They score the team scores by taking the top 5 from each team and add the place they get to each other...if that makes sense.....for example Jessica got 4th, Taylor got 6th, Delaney got 14th, Tricia got 15th and I am not sure what the other runner got but you add 4,6,14,15 and the other score and that is our total...the least amount of points wins!!! That does not happens very often!!!! Taylor and Delaney and the rest of their team coming around the first corner.Taylor on the left and Delaney on the right coming right past us on the first corner.
Here they are with the "prize".....they both got medals....they placed through 15th place...it was Laney's lucky day.....makes all that hard work worth it.
